    I have been working at Guarachi Wine Partners full-time

    Pros

    Smaller company with the opportunity to really have an impact and make a difference. Many opportunities as the company adapts to changing market conditions.

    Cons

    The owner is strong-willed and can be blunt, but he really likes to hear new ideas.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Guarachi Wine Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Aggressive compensation offered through perks and Standard add-ONs relevant to role

    Cons

    Structurally insufficient and key peronsel in national leadership positions are not fundamentally capable of running the amount of positions needed to function properly. Additionally, the company’s culture & mindset is that of one in which forces a decimation of positive workplace culture and growth. Also, search under TGIC, it’s well known they changed their name to get away from the negative track record.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate senior executive roles that handle national roles. Ensure they have the people skills to manage multiple states and people. If their turnover / churn rate =‘s triple the national average ; maybe it’s time to strategically realign to grow at a healthier capacity.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Guarachi Wine Partners full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good portfolio of South American wines with good value to quality ratio. Decent health insurance program. Decent website with brand and trade information.

    Cons

    Company/Owner does not know (or just doesn’t care) what it takes to build brands and create long term growth. Lack of investment in brands vs. competitive set. Unrealistic bonus program that cannot be achieved. Don’t expect annual raises.

    Advice to Management

    Owner should step aside and hire experienced sales management/marketing/finance team to run the business. Owner should stop constantly looking to make a quick buck and start doing what it takes to build brands for the long term. Don’t employ your unqualified girlfriend, keep your business and personal life separate.

    I worked at Guarachi Wine Partners full-time

    Pros

    Great quality wine and excellent winery partners. Full health coverage.

    Cons

    It all stems from the top. The CEO is manic, selfish and stubborn. He is unwilling to listen or trust his employees to do their jobs. His employees are more like servants, and he is quick to blame them for his own mistakes. The turnover is frighteningly high because of this! Do yourself a favor and avoid this company like the plague.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management is pointless for this company.

      I worked at Guarachi Wine Partners full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Refer to TGIC Importers for more reviews. Great wines, good people, a nice small corporate environment. There is so much potential.

      Cons

      Refer to TGIC Importers (prior company name) for more reviews. A LOT OF TURNOVER. Very negative management from the Owner who does not seem to know what he is doing so he blames everyone in his employ. The owner has created an environment of distrust and fear. People do not stay long.

      Advice to Management

      Treat your employees better. Be respectful and appreciative. Your employees will be loyal, stay and work hard to increase sales.

      The owner of this company really makes this job all worth while. He is extremely motivational and his positive energy excites us all to be proactive and innovative. He really puts his heart into everything he does and sets a good standard for his employees. A very inspiring man! All my co-wokers here make this place feel like family. I plan to be with this company for a very long time. I highly recommend this location...
